The author recently leaving a field inspection.
LowRisq in its current iteration has been a long time in the making. We started Pinnacle Safety Solutions in 2005 when it wasn't, well, Pinnacle Safety Solutions, if that makes sense. It was primarily just Trey taking care of clients across a million different industries helping them manage safety for their employees. Training, site inspections, incident investigations, answering this question or dealing with that emergency. It all helped to hone real world field experiences. Over time Pinnacle Safety Solutions was incorporated and ideas to make safety and health management better began to emerge.
Fast forward to 2019 and the final preparation for LowRisq was realized and the product was launched. Except the thing is, it isn't really new.
We have been working with clients for what seems like forever and honing our ability to help democratize health and safety for all organizations that could really use the assistance. We have done our best to put all of the services we used for Pinnacle Safety Solutions into one place, and that's LowRisq.
While many companies focus on just providing a training records database or perhaps providing safety training, they all seemed to us at LowRisq to be overly complicated and not always applicable. This author only needed one experience implementing a very expensive and well-known EHS management software to realize that it could be done better and simpler.
What we deliver is the ability to save time and money managing safety and health for each organization we serve. We do our best to put the material where it's easy to retrieve and deliver. We do our best to have an easy to follow Roadmap that tells even the newest of businesses what they need to keep their employees safe and save a buck or two along the way in insurance premiums. We do our best to deliver relevant material in a real-world manner that employees can relate to. Not only do we endeavor to deliver our material, we endeavor to teach our clients the 'why' so that they can get the employee buy-in that is so critical, yet so elusive.
We believe safety is a people business and we also believe safety management is one of the often hidden keys to profitability. Master both of these and you're doing pretty darn good.
Some of the newest developments:
We've developed a training records database that each company can integrate to track their employee's training records. Easy to set up and use. And the information is the company's to keep forever.
We deliver video training that is mobile (if need be) and that is trackable so admins or management know who has completed the training. And we have 52 weekly toolbox talk safety meetings ready to print.
We have an inspection and safety observation app that anyone can use and that reports immediately back to the person responsible for getting issues fixed.
And we have an incident reporting app that is mobile. Reach out for more info. We don't want the word to get out completely just yet until it's copyrighted (we are in the risk management business after all).
I could go on and on, but the main point there is a new way to manage safety and health for small to mid-sized businesses and we want to share our vision and serve the best we can.
